The rocks that I got

7 Mar

new-stones

New stones!  This will be my weekend’s work.  Well, some of these. 

A 1.7 ct sapphire, 2 citrines, and a gorgeous big jade, which is over a centimeter wide.  The purple is a piece of seaglass I plan to put in a ring.

I’m most excited about the jade, because I know where I am going with it; I can see the piece finished in my head.  A simple gold bezel and a thin band, the whole setting abraded to a satin finish.  It will be an airy, contemporary piece, and the jade  be the star of the show.

    Where do you find your stones for your jewelry? Just curious…

      Hi Carla, thanks for the compliments!

      One place I really have come to trust for stones is gemselect.com. I’ve never been disappointed, and everything is exactly the quality it’s supposed to be. I can spend hooouuurs just looking at their stuff!
